I had broken my upper left humerus in 3 places.

My best friend has had 2 shoulder surgeries and my dad being a veteran has personally asked for Dr.B to do his shoulder surgery. Now I go to Dr.B for my hand. I got into a car wreck and seen a docter at another hospital that wrongly diagnosed me when I seen how well he treated my family I to wanted a second opinion. When I seen Dr.B in the office he was quick in and out but if you have any questions for him he will take his time to answer them all. Its a little hard to get in touch with him sometimes but he definitely takes care of you every way possible. He is no medacine pusher. So if that's what your looking for he's not the one. I love Dr.B his P.A and the staff. I will continue to recommend him to everyone I know. Thank you!!!

I lost my foot in a car accident in April of 2021. Dr. Behboudi and Shawn shaved my foot! I still have a long way to go but because of them, I have my foot! I would highly recommend him and his staff. He and Shawn care about you and do what is best. Just remember, they can only do what they can do. If you do your part too, your care will be a success!
